Rio Salado Recruiting STEM Professionals

Posted By Linda Coyle, Wednesday, May 25, 2016
Rio Salado Recruiting STEM Professionals 

The Rio Salado Noyce Scholar Program is recruiting its last cohort of scholars with application deadline being August 1st.  Rio Salado College is particularly interested in targeting professionals displaced, trade affected or retiring workers (Encore careers) in STEM-related industries.  We are looking for individuals who are looking to make an additional impact on society, have a meaningful personal fulfillment experience, and earn an income.
The grant will provide a $16,500 stipend for professionals who have a bachelor in the science, engineering, or math. Because the majority of the Teacher Preparation Program is virtual, it allows STEM professionals the flexibility to continue their current pursuits while completing the 12-month teacher preparation coursework.  There will be opportunity for some in-field practicums which entail classroom observations in some of the coursework. At the end of the program the professionals will be required to complete 12-weeks of full-time student teaching (Noyce Scholars will not be allowed to work during the 9-week student teaching experience).  
After completing a 12-month teacher certification program, the Noyce Scholar must make a two-year commitment to an Arizona high-need STEM teaching assignment.  Rio Salado College has partnered with a thirty one Title I secondary school districts in the valley and throughout Arizona to provide not only student teaching experiences, but also job placement in math or science, grades 7-12 classrooms.
